4/5 84% Wonder (2017) A sweet and winning feel good family movie that also happens to have a strong message against bullying and lack of kindness toward our fellow human beings. A must for family viewing.‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily

54% LBJ (2017) [Woody] Harrelson, from a different part of Texas than Johnson, just nails this role, even if the makeup job is a bit jarring at first. You get used to it and completely succumb to Harrelson's talents in transforming into the 36th president‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily

3/5 51% Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) The sequel to the surprise hit is bigger and more colorful but just as wacko as the first in many ways. Kingsman is still a clever twist on the spy movie formula and fans won't be disappointed.‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily

2.5/5 83% Detroit (2017) Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal are to be commended for tackling important and pertinent stories, but Detroit is a mixed bag. In your face filmmaking packs a wallop but ultimately sheds no new light on the race war in America 50 years later.‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily

60% Despicable Me 3 (2017) Even if a whole feature film of Minions was a bit too much of a good thing, having them back in a choice supporting role is just the right tonic.‐ Deadline Hollywood Daily
